Laboratory investigations are essential for most patients who come into the hospital with 80% of medical diagnoses relying on laboratory test results.
We receive 5,000 specimens every weekday and this is increasing every year
We offer a wide range of services to meet every requirement and our staff are committed to providing the very best in diagnostic testing.
Using the most modern technology
Most tests carried out by our Biomedical Scientists are done on blood, urine, fluid or tissue samples. We use state-of-the-art analysers and up-to-date techniques to ensure results are ready as quickly and accurately as possible.
All laboratories are accredited with UKAS against ISO15189:2012 standards for Medical laboratories and are dedicated to providing a high quality, cost effective service to:
- all Newcastle Hospitals’ services
- General Practitioners
- Community Services
- other NHS Trusts regionally and nationally.
